Established in 1973, Built in Alachua, Florida, USA
Hunter Marine Corporation is now called Marlow-Hunter, LLC., which also produces the Mainship powerboat brand.
Hunter was sold in August 2012 to Mr. David E. Marlow, builder of Marlow Yachts.
The early Hunter boats, designed by John E. Cherubini, targeted the value-priced market and developed a reputation for respectable quality and good value. Marlow-Hunter utilizes the design service of Glenn Henderson and its in-house team. Hunter is responsible for several market innovations, including their trademark stainless steel cockpit arch and their use of the B & R rig. Hunter also began the construction of sailboats whose hulls make use of bow hollow and stern reflex, marine architecture design elements that maximize thrust under sail.
Hunter builds and sells through 140 dealers/distributors about 1,000 boats per year. The Hunter main factory produces about 600 larger keel boats, and roughly 400 smaller trailerable models.
